ResumenAbout half of the bacteria living in the surface ocean contain a gene coding for proteorhodopsin (PR). PR acts as a light driven proton pump. In this way it provides energy to bacteria in the surface ocean when concentrations of suitable organic matter are low. Some bacteria can only use this extra energy to survive longer under starvation conditions. Flavobacteria, however, grow faster and more efficiently in the light than in the dark. Recent experiments show the intricate regulation of central metabolic pathways necessary for this positive growth effect of light. Finally, recent surveys in deep ocean (4000 m) and in Polar winter waters suggest that PR is present and sometimes active even under such dark conditions
